Tech News March 13 Highlights: In our daily live blog, we try and cover all the news from the consumer tech world, and today we are looking at the latest iPhone 12 leak, Microsoft’s Build conference going online-only thanks to the Coronavirus threat among other announcements. Motorola has also announced the foldable Razr phone will launch in India on March 16, but it will be an online only event, given you guessed it Coronavirus.
Microsoft’s Build developer conference, which was supposed to take place from May 19 to 21 is now a ‘digital event’ as well. Once again the Coronavirus outbreak is responsible. We have seen that Google has already cancelled I/O, its own annual developer conference. Apple is yet to confirm whether its developer conference, the WWDC will take place or not, but given the spate of cancellations, we won’t be surprised if this too becomes an online-only event.
It also looks like the 3D camera is going to make its way to the iPhone 12, and this is something that has been rumoured for a while now. The latest report from Fast Company, which claims at least one iPhone will support this 3D depth camera, which will include a laser, sensor and software system to measure distance between the phone and other objects. The ‘world facing’ 3D camera as the report calls it has supposedly been in development for two years.
